Have you ever wondered about why humans can’t hibernate? Well I certainly have, if animals can do it why can’t we? Well of course we can’t but if we could there would be many technological and industrial advances. For instance space exploration could advance because there would be no strain on the body at all from radiation. Astronauts have to exercise about six hours a day but with hibernation they wouldn’t have to do any of the exercise. “Hibernation could be a literal lifesaver.” says BBC
Hibernating has the potential to change lives. As in the case of space travel people would be able to go on much longer trips and they would not have to bring as much food supplies which would lead to longer trips which would lead to more planets and galaxies and stars being discovered.
This would be a huge, the whole world would feel the effect on this. So many things could be found out and discovered by this. And if people could hibernate they would be incredibly more safe because they couldn’t hurt themselves from falling or other personal injuries. “We know that the survival rates in hibernation are close to 100%” says BBC.
I am very intrigued by the subject of hibernating for someone or something to be asleep for so long. I think it would be a great help to society. Even though it is not possible now I think with the technological advances it may be possible in a few years. Even though people may not think it is possible I do.
